Year in Computing

Are you keen to learn the tech skills that will make you stand out to a graduate employer, or to learn more about computing for your own interests?

The School of Computing offers a 'Year in Computing' for all Kent undergraduate students. This extra year can be taken after stage 2 or the final year of your degree, and you will not only learn coding and web skills, but also how to analyse data and how to make computer systems that people will want to engage with.

The Year in Computing will be an addition to your current degree and it should be possible to extend your student finances for an extra year.


Applications are now open. Please apply for the School of Computing's Year in Computing starting September 2020 using the form below. We will be accepting applications until 3 April 2020, but note that we are interviewing candidates on a rolling basis, so you are encouraged to apply early.
